Kid Icarus: Uprising had already got pushed back to 2012 in Europe but looked to be on course for a Japan and North America release this holiday season. Sadly, that doesn't appear to be the case anymore.

During today's 3DS Conference in Japan, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata announced that the game has been pushed back in all territories as the game needs more time in development.

We can't say we're too shocked — the writing seemed to be on the wall as the company's other holiday guns were given dates and Kid Icarus was left TBA — but so it goes.
